This is the first I have to do anything with htaccess. I bought a classified script and part of the instructions in setting it up was the following:
4. NOTE! This site will only run in a subdomain or on the main HTML file
Note: If you are editing the file on Windows, you may not be able to save
it with the name ".htaccess". In that case, save it with some temporary
name (eg: htaccess.txt), upload it and then rename it to ".htaccess".
Well, I did exactly that, uploaded the file to my server, renamed it to .htaccess and then the file just disappeared from the directory altogether. By the way, the server is on a unix platform.
It kept doing that each time I rename it. Because of that, the script doesn't work, the program will not create files and directories each time I create an ad or categories or even upload an image. At the same time the htaccess file keeps disappearing from the directory each time I rename it.
Any help? Thanks a heap!
